The renovation of several buildings in the residential area “Gauguin Matisse” in Calais included the external insulation of facades. This was achieved by M32 panels from Myral consisting of thermal insulation mousse PIR, PVC edges, a vapour barrier and Reynolux coil-coated aluminium for the exterior claddings.
These M32 panels of Myral can be directly applied on the façade – frameless or as weatherboarding by fixing ankles in the supporting wall. But they can also be installed as cladding or on standing seams.
A special feature was to install the panels with insulating material of different thicknesses horizontally and vertically to lend a certain dynamics to the facade. The external thermal insulation system was developed by the company Myral.
Incorporating the insulating material Myral-Therm W23 and installed as weatherboarding the system can reach a thermal resistance of up to 7.89 W/m²K. Furthermore the lightweight panels (4 kg/m²) do not cause any overload on the supporting structure.
Next to their efficient thermal insulation and profitability the M32 panels offer many finishes for customisable aesthetics. To reduce thermal expansion and conduction and keep a lasting image the dark coloured panels have been coated with the technical coating GreenShield.
Developed by Alcoa Architectural Products the GreenShield coating helps preserving natural resources as well as constructing cost saving buildings by reducing energy consumption and increasing the durability of the metal.
